the democrats need 17 seats. there's a reason why barack obama has transitioned his political operation into this non-profit messaging operation to reinforce the direction he wants to go with the country at the grassroots level to target those seats. i don't see how and where the republican party beyond, you know, calling a committee meeting here and there has been on the ground in neighborhoods doing the very difficult, out-of-the-box work relating to voters. and so unless they do that, unless they message is really honed and fine-tuned, it's going to be very difficult to hold on as the president's momentum grows. we'll see what happens in response to the state of the union. we'll see what happens in response to immigration and other issues. but, right now, to your point, i think we've got a lot of work to do and it starts with making sure that you have your base behind the steps you want to take. you just can't go out and say, oh, obama is a bad guy, follow us. >> now, governor, talking about base behind, political says the rnc meeting focused on broadening the appeal to minority vote

there will be the emphasis on the enforcement side, but i think that obama will spend some political capital on the issue of how these 11 million undocumented aliens can become on the path to citizenship. >> and as someone who kns that process, who knows the complicated paperwork, who knows the frustration of waiting for the bureaucracy, do you think it can be done, you can have a path to earned citizenship, which somebody comes forward, gets first a green card, legal status and then in line for citizenship. can that be done in a way that is fair or as fair as possible in the sense that if there is someone who has been waiting legally, will the people already in this country actually go to the back of the line? that's what a lot of people suspect won't happen. >> well, the senate proposal and president obama have both said they will go to the back of the line. that line in some instances is years long for family reunification. it is one of the reasons that employers have said over and over that we need a simplified streamlined immigration system so that persons can be hired legally. and have a legal path
